Speaking of something, I sang that at the wine bar last night.
I have two big fearsand I feel as if I confronted them both yesterday. During the day Blair and I went fishing (Blair fished and I took photos and followed him upstream) which required a lot of wading through water, and muddy banks and basically a lot of places leeches would love. I haaaaaate leeches, especially since 'The Boobyalla Incident' featuring at least 100 leeches and a panicking Kate. So going anywhere that may have leeches usually has me freaking out, but yesterday I spent ages standing in mug and wading through riverbed without a single freakout (or a single leech, truth be told, but that's not the point) even if I did keep checking my legs.
Last night Blair and I went to the local wine bar. We had a couple of friends we were expecting to join us, but they bailed , so it was just Blair and me, alcohol, a bunch of friendly strangers and.....a karaoke machine.
My other great fear in life is public speaking, and I've never done proper karaoke before (apart from anything, I can't sing for shit) because I'm just too scared. But last night, with the promise that "the next person to get p and sing will get a free cocktail" I got up and did Radio Ga-Ga. That set me off. I then did a duet of Mama Mia with the karaoke guy. Then I was drunk and it was Something Stupid with Blair, Something by myself but really with the crowd, and god, a bunch of songs I'm now having a bit of trouble remembering.
It was a good day,a nd if I can get rid of at least most of this hangover in the next 20 minutes and go meet my mother with a smile that will fool her, I'll consider it a complete success.
I've been really crap at updating, but as I sit here with my fizzing glass of aspirin, preparing myself to go have breakfast with my mother (who agrees to have breakfast with their mother the morning after what they knew was gonna be at least a middle sized night out?) I figured I'd write something...something.....
